We’ve all had that one moment in life when we wanted to leave everything behind, jump of a cliff and soar through the skies. Well, Julien and Tancrède are living that dream. These friends are trailblazers in the sport of ‘highlining’-a vertiginous combination of climbing, slackline, tightrope walking and base jumping. The boundaries they push in this video don’t even exist in our realms of reality and when you see them reach, and cross those boundaries you’ll have to pick your jaw up off the floor.
The absolute lack of fear these guys show is audacious, to say the least. They go from the skyscrapers of Paris to the bare rocks of Norway to hone their skills and scale new heights. The GoPro shots of the video are guaranteed to give you goosebumps as you see, first hand, the sights a base jumper sees when about to take the plunge. His fears are yours too just for that instant. When the parachute deploys his triumph is yours too just for that instant.
If this video doesn’t make you want to get off your couch, we don’t know what will.
